Large Vase French Ceramist J. Suzor geometric pattern, Craqueling GlazeLongwy
Located in Paris, France
Jacqueline SUZOR de PANAFIEU (1903 – 1981) Numbered Large vase signed J. Suzor, circa 1970 geometric pattern, cracked ceramic, creation Desert Occidental, collection "Santal" "Handmade in France, Faiencerie des Recollets". White-grey craqueling glazed, very beautiful pattern . Superb vintage condition, no repairs. Born in 1903 in Paris, Jacqueline studied drawing as a teenager. From the 1920s to 1935, she began a promising career as a painter. From Kiki to J.S. de PANA-FIEU, through Suzor, JSP or Pana (more than 6 signatures for one artist!), Jacqueline Suzor de Panafieu assumed several personalities during her life as a Parisian artist. Her signatures bear witness to a woman's life and career made up of ruptures and twists. Curious about everything and everyone, Jacqueline Suzor surrounded herself with artists, writers, filmmakers, actors and photographers who met at her table. She also met Dali and Giacometti. Jacqueline freed herself from the cubist influence, she defined herself in the 1930s, an aesthetic that came from her passion for the Far East, developed through contact with the objects brought back by her ambassador father during his distant travels. Two artists inspired her during the period from 1957 to 1962: Bernard Buffet and Georges Matthieu. From one she borrowed the black lines; from the other she owed her passage to abstraction. Her numerous exhibitions in the 1970s brought her recognition in France and abroad. It was also a time of commitment within the Union of Women Painters and Sculptors (UFPS), of which she became vice-president.

Authentic Pair of French Armchair, Louis XVI Period, 1775-1790
Located in Paris, France
These authentic Louis XVI period armchairs, original and authentic, seduced me by their modernity. Very rare with their original cream lacquer, flat and square back "à la Reine", with their strict armrests and highly visible assembly, straight legs turned into quivers in the shape of a column tapered down and fluted. The foot ends in a dice that rests on the ground, while the top is cubic is decorated with a circular molding pattern quite rare contrary to the rosette pattern often used for copies - The queen chairs have perfect proportions in their elegant silhouette. In general, I am only interested in design and contemporary pieces, but in the course of my peregrinations I sometimes come across pieces that do not leave me indifferent.

French Artist Charles Lapicque Tapestry Limited Edition 1/2 "Pelops", 1964
By Charles Lapicque
Located in Paris, France
Exceptional limited edition 1/2 tapestry "Pelops" with certificate from a private collection, 1964. Ateliers Pinton brothers in Felletin, under the supervision of Pierre Baudouin 2ex + 1EA Editor Aram Iynedjian. The tapestry will be sold with its certificate of authenticity from the gallery. From the 15th century, the name of Pinton was associated with the Aubusson tapestry. Since then, over the generations, the Pinton family has largely contributed to the development of this fabulous cultural heritage until the creation in the 19th century, of the Felletin factory, in the department of Creuse. Even today, in these workshops, the craftsmen execute the same correct gestures with the same attention to detail and thus extend the chain of the history of the tapestry of tradition but also contemporary. The hand of specialists, the eye of designers and dyers and the taste of the most demanding clientele find their meaning in the fabric of the carpets. The excellence of French know-how, a living heritage society and custodian of Aubusson's cultural heritage, has always collaborated with great artists. The works of Charles Le Brun, Charles Lapicque, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Othoniel, and many other big names in the world of painting, architecture, design, fell into the looms and know-how ancestral of this unique Creuse creator. Editor Aram Iynedjian Aram Iynedjian, Lausanne gallery owner and editor of tapestries from Braque, Estève and Lapicque, the latter meets Pierre Baudouin, the most famous of the cardboard painters of the time. The one who translated the works of Le Corbusier, Calder or Picasso into tapestry then collaborates with Charles Lapicque and they will develop a work of great richness. Lapicque came to realize these two summits which are "Pélops" and "Diane et Actéon". I realize that you should never try to describe a work of art Let’s look at it. Let us admire the science of composition, linear purity, technical perfection, the beauty of color, the truth of the drama. Let us see, if we can, the implacable presence of genius. "We will now understand that after having based a painting on the love of tapestry, it was relatively easy, and very tempting, to build a tapestry faithful to my painting," explained the artist in the exhibition catalog. of the Galerie Verrière in 1970. It was not until 1961 that he began to produce cardboards both for the tapestry of the Lisse in Aubusson, but also at the Mobilier National, with the help of Pierre Baudouin Charles Lapicque (1898-1988) Born in 1898 in Theizé (Rhône) in a family practicing both the arts and the sciences, Charles Lapicque is no exception to the rule: gifted for music and drawing, he graduated from the École Centrale in 1921, works as engineer until 1928 before integrating in 1931 a laboratory at the Faculty of Sciences of Paris, where he carried out research on the perception of colors, crowned by the title of Doctor of Physical Sciences in 1938. He thus studies the reactions of the eye in front of an intense light source, at the origin of the formation of starry images which he will use in his works, and defines a theory of the staggering of colors in space which overturns the rules of the Renaissance: "I had shown that the Classic rule, that of Vinci, advocating placing the blues in the distance, the reds, oranges and yellows in the foreground, is a nonsense; it makes more sense, more favorable to do the opposite. "(In Red and blue in the arts, 1936) It was around 1920 that Charles Lapicque began to paint in Brittany where he spent every summer since his childhood, first on the motif and then in a workshop that his stepfather Jean Perrin, Nobel Prize in Physics, had him build in 1927 ; he then definitively adopted the work of memory, in accordance with the art of music which he deeply loved and the Bergsonian philosophy of knowledge: "It is up to us to give reality an appearance that it has no itself, a form, a figure (...). " His youthful production immediately reveals a great originality, oscillating between figuration and abstraction which sometimes intertwine: alongside synthetic paintings by their simplified drawing and their flat colors, he designs an Homage to Palestrina (1925), composed of a grid derived from Cubism, entirely abstract, relayed by a Christ with Thorns (1939), according to a principle that he will develop after 1939, in line with his optical discoveries. In fact, during the war years, an almost abstract period began, that of the tight blue framework, applied to backgrounds ranging from yellow to red and revealing a more or less identifiable world (Jeanne d'Arc crossing the Loire, 1940; Rencontres series, 1940-1945). Exhibited in 1929 by the gallery owner Jeanne Bucher, Lapicque abandoned his scientific career in 1943 to devote himself entirely to painting. He continued his work which resulted in 1946-1953 in white-frame structures; their much softer lines lead him to the system of either black or white interlacing which encloses areas of pure color, most often in solid color. With The Battle of Waterloo in 1949, Lapicque still uses optics - zooming in on a given area - to depict spaces with multiple perspectives and decomposed times. This new interest in the liveliness of color developed in the following period, which can be described as flamboyant or Baroque (1954-1963): illustrated in particular by the series of Breton lagoons and twilight or nocturnal views of Venice in the light. Stars, which the artist himself describes as “daring sweets”, it begins with the Raoul Dufy Prize of the Venice Biennale, awarded in 1953 to the artist who took the opportunity to give free rein to his passion for the Serenissima until July 1956. Another point in common with his elder brother is the expression of movement. Begun in 1949 in The Battle of Waterloo then in 1952 with Dimanche aux regates, it became an obsession from 1964, in the exploration of new themes, such as the different shots of tennis players captured on the fly (1965), the mythological scenes and sea storms. These dizzying years precede the artist's last period: as he comes of age, he discovers serenity, revealed by a painting now with acrylic paint, much more peaceful from 1974, which even borders on a childish naivety at the end. of his life. All of his work includes an astonishing diversity of themes, also nourished by his travels (Rome in 1957, Greece in 1964, Holland in 1974 ...), with a predilection for the sea, rocks, sailboats, music, tennis, horses, wild beasts, but also for history and mythology, as evidenced by knights, kings and ancient gods. It also deploys, in total creative freedom, a wide variety of styles and orientations. Having been one of the pioneers of non-figurative art, thus paving the way for artists like Manessier, Bazaine, Vieira da Silva, De Staël, etc. Owners of the new non-figurative Paris School of the Postwar period, Charles Lapicque then returned to figuration, in a "new interpretation" of appearance, even if he continued to rub shoulders with abstraction at times. "Drawing runs after color and color after drawing. " Heir to the Fauves, Charles Lapicque plays like them on pure colors, whose dissonances, associated with a totally free design and an overloaded composition in a multiple space, make him a precursor of the New Figuration in all its forms: the Narrative Figuration born in France in the early 1960s, represented in particular by Gérard Fromanger, Erró, Bernard Rancillac and Gérard Guyomard; Free Figuration born in the early 1980s, marked by Robert Combas, Hervé and Richard Di Rosa, Louis Jammes and François Boisrond, and which, in turn, influenced the American Bad Painting of a Jean-Michel Basquiat or a Keith Haring, deliberately neglected and Expressionist; Lapicque's “Classic subjects” were able to feed Cultivated Painting, which also appeared in the early 1980s with Jean-Michel Alberola, Patrice Giorda and Gérard Garouste...

Exceptional Gaston Poisson & Robert Pansart Cabinet Lacquered Mahogany, Art Deco
By Gaston Poisson, Atelier Pansart
Located in Paris, France
This splendid and rare large furniture piece includes three doors with engraved signed keys from the artist Gaston Poisson, “GP”. This circa 1937 cabinet is made of green lacquered* mahogany and contains 12 interior shelves (three doors each with 4 shelves), each shelf featuring beautiful marquetry detail. The centerpiece of this beautiful cabinet is the large exterior mirror by Robert Pansart. This is made of "églomisé" glass with a polychrome geometric ribbon-like decor. Églomisé glass is a technique used often for mirrors that creates intricate decoration using golden leaves and silver. *THE LACQUER IS NOT ORIGINAL, THE CABINET HAS BEEN REFINISHED LATE 20 CENTURY Gaston Poisson, a cabinetmaker from Lille, France, is a renowned Renaissance designer best known for his modernist work. He has a unique taste for pure clean lines, mostly from the 1950s-1960s, which is exemplified in this particular piece. The square and diagonal motifs visible on the facade of the cabinet as well as the ornate marquetry on the interior shelves show that this piece was highly specialized, a well thought out piece made with incredible care. Robert Pansart is a French glassmaker and decorator who specialized in his unique technique of etching and oxidizing with “églomisé” glass. One of the most highly regarded glassmakers of his time, he mainly worked from post war years to the 1960s, and his work is reminiscent of a world based on fairy tales – evocative of the 1940s-1950s taste. His mirrors tend to appear in the antique art market and are valued as highly collectible pieces. Pansart mirrors were auctioned at very high prices at auctions at Artcurial and other major auction houses (see the last picture) Different works of the artist: Berliz Cinema in Paris Municipal Theater of Poitiers (see last picture) Theater of the Paquebot France

Worldwide Limited Edition Yves Klein, Ours Pompon in resin with IKB pigments
By François Pompon
Located in Paris, FR
Original Limited Edition Worldwide Yves Klein Ours Pompon, sculpture in resin with IKB pigments under Plexiglas, signed, titled and numbered, from 2022 Yves Klein tirelessly sought the essence of art and wanted to expose its immateriality. The artist thus found in sculpture a true space of freedom where the monochrome impregnates the space in three dimensions. In 1962, Yves Klein covered universally admired masterpieces with his IKB blue: the Venus of Alexandria, the Victory of Samothrace or Michelangelo's Dying Slave. They then become incarnate objects, sensitive presences. In 2022, 100 years after its success at the Salon d'Automne, François Pompon's White Bear ( Ours Pompon ) meets Yves Klein's Blue. One captured the essence of form, the other that of color and beyond, the essence of art. The art of reality, of freedom, of life. Important : This splendid orignal and authentic edition was handmade by French artisans out of respect and passion for the living heritage. The work has been executed without interpreting, without damaging, without altering, with respect and admiration of the original work. A careful edition in matter and form faithful to the spirit of the creator. It has been carried out with the agreement of the owners of the works and are also subject to the approval of the rights holders or their representatives with all the requirement and respect for the creations of the artists.

Louvre, Bronze after P. Julien Executed from a Marble Ordered by Marie-Antoinette
Located in Paris, FR
This splendid sculpture represents Young Girl with a Goat (Amalthea and Jupiter's Goat), after the original by Pierre Julien commissioned by Louis XVI in 1785 and completed in 1787 for the cot of Queen Marie-Antoinette in Rambouillet. The work of the sculptor Pierre Julien decorated the interior of a grotto in a pavilion decorated with bas-reliefs by the same sculptor (acquired by the State by dation in 2003). The work was the main element of a rock basin, which was destroyed during the renovation of the gardens of the small castle. The same sculpture was seized during the Revolution and exhibited in the Louvre from 1829. The terracotta sketch, which belonged to the collector Ernst May, must have adorned his château de la Couharde (Yvelines) before entering the Louvre's collections in 1920. The bronze set with a beautiful gilded patina presented here is a work after the original by Pierre Julien (1731-1804) and dates from the 19th century (around 1850). The superbly preserved sculpture, which has belonged to the same family since its acquisition, is presented on its original base in grey serpentine marble. The quality of this work is doubly certified: - on the one hand it is stamped with a round stamp at the top "A. This stamp is a sign of high quality. Achille Collas (1794 - 1859) was the French engineer, engraver and illustrator, inventor among other things of the patented mathematical reduction process of the 19th century to reproduce sculpted objects in reduction, which was very successful. He was awarded a prize at the 1855 exhibition: his "Procédé mécanique", the name under which he prints all his productions, is easily recognisable by the finesse of its execution and by the famous stamp which appears on the base (terrace) of this sculpture. - On the other hand, an important signature is found on the terrace of the sculpture "F. Barbedienne Fondeur", founder. In 1844, Achille Collas, in order to protect his invention, formed the Société Collas et Barbedienne (Paris) with the art founder Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810-1892), which began to produce and sell famous but smaller sculptures in plaster, wood, bronze or ivory. The first object to be marketed was the Venus de Milo after the original in the Louvre Museum. Other sculptures such as the sculpture of George Washington, of which a bronze bust was made by the Barbedienne & Process Collas foundry, are currently in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. HEIGHT OF THE SCULPTURE without base 69CM + BASE = 84CM WIDTH OF THE SCULPTURE without base 28 CM + BASE = 30,5 CM LENGTH OF THE SCULPTURE without base 46 CM + BASE 51 CM The Collas and Barbedienne company was highlighted at the Great Exhibition in London in 1851, the objects of the Barbedienne foundry received a medal and sales soared. At the 1889 Universal Exhibition in Paris, the Barbedienne company again presented a large number of its compositions, including the large neo-Renaissance clock of 1878. This clock, which was part of the Leblanc-Barbedienne estate, was donated by his heirs to the city of Paris, and is kept in the city hall. Pierre Julien (20 June 1731 - 17 December 1804) was a French neo-classical sculptor who worked in the full range of rococo and neoclassical styles. He had an early apprenticeship in Le Puy-en-Velay, near his native village of Saint-Paulien, and then at the École de Dessin in Lyon, before entering the Paris workshop of Guillaume Coustou le Jeune. In 1765, he won the Prix de Rome for sculpture with a bas-relief panel depicting a subject from Antiquity and entered the Royal School for Protected Pupils, which offered a special curriculum under the direction of the painter Louis-Michel van Loo. He was a boarder at the Académie de France in Rome from 1768 to 1773, where he was influenced by the wave of neoclassicism affecting his fellow students. As boarders were required to do, he sent back to France a slightly reduced marble copy of the so-called Cleopatra, the Sleeping Ariadne from the Vatican, which survives in Versailles. Back in France and with his former master, he worked on the sculpture of the mausoleum of Louis, the Grand Dauphin, in the cathedral of Sens. After a failed attempt in 1776, with his Ganymede, he was accepted by the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in 1778, with a Dying Gladiator. He was appointed one of the first members of the Institut de France in 1795, and knight of the Legion of Honour in 1804. He was commissioned by the Count of Angiviller, director of the King's Buildings, on behalf of Louis XVI, to paint the figures for a series of life-size portraits of the great men of France: he produced a Jean de La Fontaine and a Nicolas Poussin, whom he chose to depict in a nightgown, similar to the draperies of a Roman toga. While fulfilling commissions in Paris, for the church of Sainte-Geneviève (now the Panthéon, Paris), or for the Pavillon de Flore in the Louvre, he sculpted in 1785 a virtuoso marble set representing the nymph Amalthée and Jupiter's nurse goat for the Queen's Dairy at the Château de Rambouillet; for his model, he adapted the pose of the famous Venus of the Capitoline. The bas-reliefs of the Dairy, considered his masterpieces, were sold at auction in 1819, but were recovered by the State in 2005, thanks to a gift from the son of the great dealer-collector Daniel Wildenstein. 19th century French school, after Pierre Julien (1731-1804)Amalthea and Jupiter's Goat Bronze with a light brown patina and gilding, reduction made after the marble by Pierre-Julien 1785 executed for Marie-Antoinette at the Laiterie du parc du château de Rambouillet in the Louvre Museum.
